April 2016 Ipsy Bag Unboxing

Time for another Ipsy bag Unboxing/First Impressions post! This month’s theme is “Dreamers“.

If you’re unfamiliar with Ipsy, it’s a beauty subscription service that sends you a cute little “glam bag” filled with 5-6 full or deluxe-sized products each month for just $10. The bags are catered towards your preferences (through a “beauty quiz” you take when you sign up and later through how you “rate” the products you receive) so the products in the bags vary from person to person. I have been an Ipsy subscriber for several years and have been very happy with the various items I have received. If you would like to sign up for your own Ipsy bag, you can sign up HERE.

The month is April, spring is here – I expect the bag to be something floral-patterned or pastel-colored. Instead the design is like tie-dye, with colors that remind me more of summer. I’m not even sure how it quite goes with the “Dreamers” theme. Regardless, it’s cool and interesting and the bag itself is simple. Nothing too special or different from past bags.


Inside the Bag

tarte LipSurgence lip creme in wonder
Love this! Tarte is a wonderful, cruelty-free brand, and I’m always happy to receive one of their products in my Ipsy bag! This lip creme is super creamy and pigmented and feels amazing on the lips! You can also use it on your cheeks! Use code IPSYAPR at for 20% off any purchase.

Trust Fund Beauty That Glo Tho Face Highlighter
This was one of the highlights of this month’s bag for me – haha, get it? Sorry. But no really, highlighters have become one of my favorite beauty products this year. Even when I decided to go makeup-free for the day, I’ll still add a bit of highlighter to my face just to give me a little glow. This “glo” stick in it’s sleek black packaging is great for when you’re on the go! It goes on smooth and is really buildable so you can control your glow. Use code IPSY35 at for 35% off any purchase.

REN Skincare Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream
I haven’t really tried this yet so I can’t say much. The brand boasts 100% natural formulas for it’s products. This day cream can be used on its own or blended with foundation. It has a nice, light scent and claims to be hydrating, fight signs of premature ageing and trains skin to be less sensitive. Interesting. I’ll save it for my next trip. Use code IPSY20 at for 20% off any purchase.

Moroccanoil Treatment
Ah, the brand that started the hair oil trend. This argan oil treatment will leave your hair super soft and shiny! Unfortunately, I’ve gotten quite a few hair/oil treatments in past Ipsy bags and find that I rarely use them – not that I don’t need them. With my super long, dry hair I’m probably just the type of person who should be doing weekly hair treatments. I guess I just forget about them. I tell myself I’ll use them when I travel, but I always end up just taking the regular shampoo or conditioner deluxe sized products and never use the hair treatments so they’ve just been piling up. Not a bad product at all, but knowing me, I’m not sure when I’ll actually use it. Use code IPSYTOTE at for a FREE tote bag with any purchase.

Luxie Beauty Dreamcatcher Tapered Highlighter Brush 522
Super soft and fluffy brush! It’ll be great for highlighingt/contouring/blending! Use code IPSYDREAM at for 30% off any Luxie product purchase.
